Abstract

In order to enhance understanding of the quality of decision making during family planning consultations in developing countries, provider competencies and client behaviors during 179 randomly selected consultations in Indonesia were assessed. Results show that family planning clients make a significant contribution to the quality of the decision-making process, most notably by identifying the problem requiring a decision, expressing their feelings about using a method, and asking questions. Client involvement may compensate for provider weaknesses, which tend to be in areas calling for interpersonal rather than technical skills. However, the programmatic ideal of informed choice has not yet been realized. Supervisors, trainers, communicators, and program managers can improve the quality of decision making by: creating opportunities for client involvement during consultations, strengthening providers' ability to fully inform clients about their options, and making providers aware of the opportunities for decision making in consultations with continuing clients.
